22 oz bomber. Pours a beautiful rosy red/brown color. Some slightly pink head, good lacing. Aroma is sour cherries up front with some great malt undertones as well. Is there a slight leather aroma too? Perhaps. Flavor is very complex, with sour cherry, yeast, and malt up front. As it cooled, I also tasted vanilla and bourbon notes imparted by the oak casking. All in all, this was quite remarkable. Special thanks to Andrew at QFC at the north Broadway location for pulling this out of the back for me. I will definitely continue to do my beer shopping at your store.

I was excited to try this and it did not disappoint. I love the Oud Bruin style and cherries are by far my favorite fruit in beers. Here it's a near perfect marriage of sweet malt, wild sourness, and juicy cherry. The cherry is not overly candy-ish but more natural, which is a very good thing. For 11% is still fairly bright and lively, perfect for pairing. Yum! stantheman (1098) - British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 20, 2017
